A choir of homeless people is to release a charity single tomorrow with a series of singing flashmobs across the city.
Brighton’s Choir With No Name is one of four English homeless choirs who have come together to record the cover of This is Me from The Greatest Showman.
The year-old Brighton based choir, which is run in partnership between the national Choir with No Name charity and local organisation Brighton Housing Trust (BHT), has also filed a video.
Tomorrow, it will perform the single other songs at Jubilee Library from 4.30pm and take part in a series of lively promotional flashmobs across the city.
All profits raised from it will go to the Choir With No Name’s work supporting people affected by homelessness.
Choir member Sandie said of the recording day: “It was an incredible experience that I can say eclipses being homeless. This is a sign of things to come – I will be back on my feet!
“I feel so blessed and humbled to be part of a project that gives people hope. Choir With No Name has saved my life.”
Choir Manager Alex Procter said: “The Brighton Choir With No Name is only a year old but we’ve come so far in that time. I’m proud that our members took part in creating this single, which sounds absolutely amazing.
“Our community is one of real friendship, support and joy, founded in creativity and singing. Please buy the single and help us to continue and grow.”
The Choir With No Name is also appearing at a charity gala at Glyndebourne next month alongside Eddie Izzard, Zoe Lyons and Steve Coogan, as well as other Sussex acts including hip hop dancer JP Omari and his Brighton Street Funk Dance Group and dancers from Brighton College.
The gala on the afternoon of November 17 will raise money for homeless charity Homelink.
The This is Me single and its video will be published here tomorrow.
